The Final 4 (Mecca, Monza, VS3s, SV1 Forged SV5)

Hey gang, It seems like I’ve been trying to make a decision for ever. (like 58k miles worth) I would like your opinion on my top wheel choices.

Giovanna Mecca Wheels (22x 9 /10.5) chrome w/ cyber grey face ($XXXX.xx)*

Giovanna Monza Wheels (22x 9 /10.5) chrome w/ cyber grey face ($XXXX.xx)*

Vossen CV-3 (22x 9 /10.5) ?? w/ cyber grey face ($XXXX.xx + apx $700.00)*

SV1 Forged SV5s (22x 9.5 /11) chrome w/ 2 tone cyber grey face ($XXXX.xx + apx $1500.00)
(* includes the possibility of about $500 for custom finishing)
3 piece SV1 forged in step lip 22s are my favorite, but the priciest.

Tires are going to have to be a slightly taller than stock (.6 and .7 inch) 22 to get a decent sidewall. Currently the best option is VREDESTEIN ULTRAC SUV SESSANTA TIRES 315/30R22 and 265/35R22 so I’m planning to go with these.
Would appreciate opinions.

Yea, I really like them. I'd be doing the 22s in stepped lip and 2 tone faces (cyber grey vs. black shown on the pics)
They list $5200 (22s) and $4400 on 20s. The will work with you a bit on that. I went direct. The thing about thoses, you can have any width and offset you want. That last pic is a guy on the forumn that has them with the normal faces. His are 9.5 and 11s in width

Can go wrong with either option...but those Sv1's look pretty nice...goodluck with your choice...but if your going to run 315 why not go with a wider wheel (11) it will be a better fit...but the 10.5 will fit that tire based on Nine"s charts.
Good luck.

I'm in agreement with ya, thats one of the selling points of the SV1 forged, I can get them in 11s (or 11.5 if I want to push it)
The other manufactures, only go to 10.5 to allow fitments with other cars such as the BMW 5 series and 7 series I'm told

I'm told the Audi (shown 1st) has 22x9 and 22 x 10.5 just like for the Camaro, just this application has different offsets

I'm not sure what sizes this Beemer (shown 2nd) has

So, of the 4 styles what do you like?

Vossen, I do like those. I really want to have a cyber grey face, and it seems its comes ALL grey or ALL silver and I'm not even sure if theor gray matches the factory cyber grey. (and I really don't want 100% grey) I'll consider it if I can get an idea of what can be done in terms of finishing them.

These were my 1st reasonably priced wheel that caught my attention. I was not thrilled of the 20 inch silver ones on a camaro5 members car (not bad, just not me), but these two tone versions with grey centers in 22s could look awesome. I wish there were pics available that showed this option.



Anyone else have some thoughts?

The SV-1 are really nice, I don't regret buy them except I don't get to drive my car that much, bought it 2 year ago and only have 2200 miles on it. I liked them because they were similar to my Simmons Wheels on my Impala SS. Here are some more pics of my SV-1 with steplip.

Wheels when I got them.
